  • Local judges trade the courtroom for a classroom

    For those in the law profession, being a college graduate is required before going on to the difficult task of law school. After which, one must pass the bar exam and then hopefully snag a great position in an upstanding law firm – work for a few years, get to know people in the community and then, maybe, run for judge.

    One would think after all that schooling, judges would be done with sitting inside a classroom.

    But that is far from the truth.
